I think that many Birds are already finished with their Business of Re-Production,
there is no need to sing or do crazy things any more like they do in the Spring!
I even think that some Bird are already on their way to the South like the Swallow,
here they train already a lot and in one or two Weeks they will go!
Swallows are my Favourites!

Why would you want to kill pigeons?

I'm a fairly avid birder. In most areas there are interest groups or government departments that count bird populations/spieces on a regular basis. If you are particularly concerned you can drive around and do counts in your area yourself and compare your results with theirs. Keep in mind that you will have to do a number of counts in order to avoid anomalies.
If you pursue this there are a number of great resources to help you identify birds in your area by image, description or sound. I use Ibird Pro on my IPad and the Sibley guide book in North America but there will cetainly be excellent equivialnts in the UK. Mobile device apps are fun because you can use the sound function to get birds to call back to you.
Keep in mind that nature alway keeps us guessing and that birds will come and go over very short periods for whatever reason. Also there is a perception that certain birds have disappeared and others are taking over. Often this is explained do to shifts in their range do to things like linear disturbances (something we suffer from greatly here do to the oil industry), and agricultural change of the landscape, etc.
Good luck finding an answer. Very nice avatar by the way.
